Cowboys Cry Too

C  casually stands next to his saddled horse
O  openly he weeps (so) full of his remorse
W  what is left of pale pink running rose that grew
B   blood floods from thorn pricks he's getting his due
O   oh! tangled web with his love he did weave
Y   yesterday she discovered all his cowboy lies believed

SAra. I like how yours is not exactly a definition of cowboy but just showing an element of him. I want to do it this way but never got an answer yet if it was ok to do that or not . Oh well, worth a shot I guess!!
